Do you have an interest in investing, entrepreneurship and startups? Would you like to learn how to invest, expand your network and gain valuable experience? Then the Dutch Student Investment Fund (DSIF) might be the right place for you! We are looking for passionate students to join the team and help us run and grow the first student venture capital fund in the Netherlands!
DISF is all about diversity and openness. That is why UT and Saxion students from various backgrounds and studies are welcome to apply. That way, we get a dynamic and multi-disciplinary team to lead DSIF with creativity and expertise. We do not ask for previous affiliation or experience in finance, investment and venture capital. Any previous knowledge in this area is of course great. But for now, passion and willingness to learn will do!
DSIF offers you a unique opportunity to expand your horizons in the domain of venture capital investing and startups. The positions within the fund are flexible and can be full-time, part-time or project-based. We provide you with a solid network of partners that can be a valuable connection. This can for example be a partner that gives you trainings where you can learn more about investing. You will also get the chance to work on teamwork, organizational skills, time-management, communication…the options are limitless. At the end of the day, your time at DSIF is what you make of it!
The position we are looking for is the head of the fund, which means taking the lead in the advancement of DSIF’s vision and strategy. Internally this means that you are responsible for the organization within the student board of directors, reporting to the senior board and the fund’s shareholders. Next to that, you are an active investor that maintains relations with current partners and startups as well as someone that connects to new parties. As the President of DSIF, you are capable of creative thinking, leading the team and connecting people with your open and pro-active nature.
A DSIF ambassador is a project-based position in our fund. Depending on your interest, you will have the possibility to do projects related to marketing, finance, portfolio management and external affairs. For example, some of the tasks that you might do include scouting for high-potential student startups, investment analysis, organization and participation in events, blogging, connecting and cooperating with organizations in Twente’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and beyond. DSIF gives you all the freedom to turn creative ideas into new projects and help grow the fund further.
Tell us about yourself, what you would like to do in DSIF and why you are the person for the position.
We will give you a short assignment to get a feel of what venture capital investing is (applies only to director positions).
You will be invited to an interview with the current DSIF board to discuss your application.
Once we have processed all applications, we will make a selection of candidates that we believe are the best fit with DSIF.
We will start with on-boarding to introduce new members to DSIF so that they can lead the fund towards new heights.
